Dart Wood is available singly or can be purchased with its neighbour Gloyns Wood. See separate details.

The pleasant valley setting in the heart of rural mid-Devon is hugely enhanced by the large stream hugging the banks of the northern end of the woodland. It would be hard to find a better place to create a camping area, perhaps with a wildlife watching hide and rope swing. This valley stream is a tributary of the River Exe and is spectacularly deep and surrounded by woodland in places. The combination of the valley and thick woodland around create an atmosphere which is quiet, secretive and feels isolated. The name Dart Wood comes from the Saxon meaning of 'oak tree river'.

The woodland has a good hard-standing main parking area and is accessed via a stoned forestry track. There are good internal tracks and level areas for camping and wildlife watching. Dart Wood is bustling with bird life including woodpeckers, buzzards, owls, cole tits and tree creepers. Bats inhabit some of the oak trees, roosting in holes or under any loose bark. Red deer are a spectacular site within the woodland, grazing on the bilberries in the summer months. The ground flora is varied but is dominated in areas by bilberries, also known as whortleberries. They are closely related the blueberry, being slightly smaller in size but equally tasty!
